UK FRC appoints new members to the board

The UK Financial Reporting Council (FRC) has appointed Independent Inquiry into the Future of Civil Society in England chair Julia Unwin and Independent Complaints Council at Portman Group chair Jenny Watson to its board, effective 1 April 2018.

FRC chairman Winfried Bischoff welcomed them to the board: “Their public interest experience, particularly in the not for profit and social sectors, and among broader stakeholders will bring further insight into the FRC’s strategic thinking, particularly as we reach out to wider society in pursuit of our mission to promote transparency and integrity in business.”

Unwin is former chief executive of the Joseph Rowntree Foundation from 2007 to 2016 and Watson is a former non-executive director of the Financial Ombudsman Service and was chair of the Electoral Commission from 2009 to 2016.
